Courses operate over 10 weekday evenings, and most people come once a week.
Lesson are held from 6.00pm to 7.30pm, or from 7.40pm to 9.10pm (1.5 hour sessions).
You complete one of our levels over one course (10 weeks). And then we hope you will decide to go on to the next level! For more information, please see levels/outcomes; also check out timetable/fees.
If you missed the start date for your course, if you prefer a more intensive option, orif you would simply like to make faster progress, we offer two ways to help:
Fastrack 5. Cover the same material you would cover in 10 weeks over 5! You come for your language classes twice a week instead of once, and thereby spend the same number of hours with us. Fasttrack 5 courses are offered four times a year: starting in March, June, August and November.
Fasttrack 2. Cover the same material you would cover in 10 weeks over 2! These language courses are offered during our term breaks, therefore around Easter, early July, September/October, and in January. Over two weeks, you take classes on two evenings a week and on two Saturday mornings, and again have the same number of hours that you would otherwise have over 10 weeks. Fasttrack 2 is popular with people who are planning to travel in the near future as well as with those who would like to jump a level when they start the next term.
Course fees for Fasttrack courses are the same as for our standard language courses.
If you want to make a real commitment to language learning, and save money: enrol for a series of courses! We offer a 4-course Gold Package, which takes you from beginner level up to a point where you can expect to get by in a wide range of everyday situations.
Please see package deals for details.
Individual teaching is available either at our centre or at a location to suit you. Individual teaching can also be done via the internet.
Teaching on a one-to-one basis means we can provide the kind of teaching you require and at your pace. We can also offer two-to-one, three-to-one etc.
We consult with you to find out your specific requirements and to gear the course accordingly. Some people, for example, only need to develop speaking skills; others might just need to read reports or papers in a particular language. Whatever your goals and targets, we do our best to ensure that you achieve them as effectively and as economically as possible.
Our teachers for private tuition are specially chosen for their skills in managing this type of teaching.
Our fees for one-to-one (or two-to-one) tuition are $69 per hour, including GST; dates and times are arranged to suit you. Please contact us for more information.
While we do not currently have scheduled classes for younger students, we do offer courses for children or teenagers, either as individuals or in a tailor-made group. The teenagers' courses can be for examination preparation.
